Now the fun begins as I attempt to fill out a bracket for that mess.

Yale defeats Baylor!!! That's about 1 million brackets busted on the first day.

Through the first six games of the day, 878,201 out of roughly 13 million Tournament Challenge brackets remain perfect (6.7% overall).

I made it through the first six perfect, then Little Rock happened. I had Purdue in the E8, so my bracket is badly damaged. Right now I am 10-1.

End of Day One, and I got three wrong.

I picked Texas Tech, although I truly thought I picked Butler. I have no idea why or how Texas Tech ended up as my pick instead. Technically, three wrong but should be two because I really did think Butler was going to win. Grr.

I picked Baylor, but I am 100% okay with Yale's win. Watched the game, they played great.

I also picked USC. Evil or Very Mad

So, if USC played 40 minutes instead of 39 minutes and 58 seconds, and I had properly entered Butler instead of Texas Tech, I would only have one loss.

Alas. 13-3.

(I didn't struggle as much as I should have picking Wichita State over Arizona. Just knew they would blow it.)

So far, a typical way to start my tourney bracket, missing four games: Yale, Shockers, Butler and Providence. I did enjoy picking the Little Rock upset. The Big Ten is over-rated this year.

I didn't pick Yale, Wichita State or Little Rock.

But I did pick Gonzaga.

And of the three 8-9 games, all three 9th seeds won, but given the closeness of the seeds, I really don't consider me having picked REAL upsets. Still nice that I got Butler, Providence and UConn right. Very Happy

First game of Day Two, and I got it wrong already. Dayton just couldn't make their bunnies. Sigh.

Michigan State is trailing at halftime. I had them losing in the second round, so I'm totally okay with this.

And Michigan State is out. Almost a quarter of ESPN brackets had them as the winner.

I just heard a sports report that said of the 13 million brackets on ESPN, only 6 are left intact.

I want to know how the hell those 6 picked this thing right thus far.

What a crapshoot this tournament has turned out to be...and we still have the night games of Day 2 to go.

Now 17-7. As mentioned, the Big Ten is over-rated, even though I had M. State in the Final Four. I made the same mistake as others. I under-rated State's competition throughout the bracket.

He's the main reason I picked Michigan State to go all the way. Izzo is great great coach. I don't know what happened today.

I think I saw somewhere that after Maryland won, there was no perfect brackets left. All busted before the first round was over, as usual.

The ESPN leaderboard shows 11 brackets at 31-1, five of which have Michigan State as their national champ. None of the 310s are S16 intact.

Yeah, after I saw this clip on SI.com, I'm convinced this is the most unpredictable crazy ass March Madness ever.

I went 23-9 in the first round, which is my worst first two days that I can recall.

I did get the Stephen F. Austin upset right though. And oddly enough, despite 9 wrong picks, my entire East bracket is still intact.

RIP, sweet bracket. You were a good bracket, with Hawai'I and Yale, Northern Iowa and Little Rock.

But you had Michigan State to win it all.

Yes, like most everyone else, my bracket broke badly over two days. And yet, I think this has been the best tourney in years. At least, I'm having more fun with my bracket, than I've had in years. Maybe it's my new attitude toward life...

It certainly didn't come as a surprise that Yale went down by 27 points during the game against Duke.

But I was very surprised and happy to see that they came back to make it a game, cutting it to just 3 points before falling.

The range of their emotions from Friday's buzzer-beater to last night's choke job is the definition of March madness.

There's now a chance a double-digit seed advances to the Final Four. We're guaranteed that either Gonzaga or Syracuse advances to the Elite 8, but is it possible one of them can take out Virginia (or Iowa St.)?? It has only happened three times before(2011 - [#11] VCU; 2006 - [#11] George Mason; & 1986 - [#11] LSU).

The officials really screwed Graham over. He should've been on the floor with his teammates till the end of the game. Why must officials remind us they exist during crucial moments of games?

Of the four teams I picked to win their way to the Final Four, only Oklahoma made it and they weren't either of the teams I thought would get to the title game or win it.

Congratulations to Villanova. They did what they had to do to execute on both ends of the floor.

With that said, what I just watched was a FUCKING DISGRACE! NO TEAM is 40 points better than another team in the FINAL FOUR. Especially, when both teams are #2 seeds. We are not talking about a #1 seed facing a #16 seed, or the UCONN women facing a #10 seed. I didn't think it was possible to make it THAT FAR in the tournament and be THAT BAD on both ends of the court in one game. Oklahoma showed me! If shots aren't falling, there is no way you should allow your opponents to shoot 71% from the damn field. NO WAY!

...and TBS...GIVE ME A BREAK! What is the point of continuously going to Jackie Swann, while her son's team is down 30 points? It's one thing to show her once, but show her repeatedly. What were they looking for? Her to pass out?

I hope Syracuse and NC both show up and make tonight redeemable.
